    Fire Emblem: Awakening - Preview

    After a four-year slumber, Fire Emblem has risen to find itself on the Nintendo 3DS. Check inside to see what features have been dreamed up for the latest installment.

    [ Preview ]

    Minor edit to the article, the DS remake containing the My Unit and non-permadeath features is of the third game, not second.

    No! You can't make me! I seen a trailer, I seen the release date, now it's time to stick my fingers in my ears, close my eyes and sing "LA LA LA LA" off key and as horribly squeaky as I can.

    ps- If I do read it I'm totally still gonna act like I haven't. :|

    Someone needs to take away your sugar. You were like this for the Pokemon announcement too.

    Edit: *snip*

    aside from that, a good preview...and the game looks promising...so now everyone with a 3DS has to buy it...to get Nintendo releasing more Fire Emblem (and also hopefully more Advance Wars) games.

    I will finally buy a 3DS (XL) just for this game...still annoyed as hell @ Region Locked 3DS....should I really import a US 3DS XL? (Yeah I know this will be released in EU also but as always we usually get the short end of the stick in regards to niche RPGS/TRPGS so to prevent future desasters.....

    I am way too excited to have 4 3DS RPGs in one year. Fire Emblem, Pokemon, Etrian Odyssey and SMT: Devil Summoners: Soul Hackers! It's the first time I've actually been excited to own my 3DS.

    Not to mention I've been waiting for a new Fire Emblem for what feels like forever.

    The only reason I didn't reply with a squeee is people look at me funny when I do that.

    Oh.


    Good news for 3DS owners! A demo for the game hits the network next week on the 17th.

    Hopefully this game will be relatively idiot-proof, although lord knows I've been a better idiot over the years. The end of permadeath on Easy Street is going to be a godsend.

    Actually CLix you're wrong, FE12, the sequal to Shadow Dragon introduces the My Unit thing.

    ...I said that. New Mystery of the Emblem is the sequel to Shadow Dragon. It's a remake of the third Fire Emblem. Awakenings, if anything, is technically the 11th Fire Emblem game. I've played some of New Myster; much harder than SD. I need to check if they ever finished the translation for the plot (only had menus done in my version).


    P.S.: I just realized that the author actually is wrong but for a different reason. He said a remake of the second game in the series, but New Mystery is a remake of the third game--Fire Emblem Gaiden has never been touched since it came out over twenty years ago.

    This makes me wish I owned a 3DS. $$$ is tight.
    I have only one more battle to finish FE:PoR.
    I broke out the GCN on a whim.

    Me = Idiot ...can I field the lame non-native-speaker excuse here? No? Well too bad
    Shadow Dragon (11th FE = Remake of FE1)
    New Mystery (12th FE = Remake of FE3 (part 2) whereas part 1 was a remake of FE1)

    So it would be:
    ...while the "My Unit" system from the DS remake of the third game in the series, released only in Japan, makes a return and allows players to create their own avatar character.
    but this permadeath can be turned off in Awakening, again a feature that briefly appeared previously in the DS remake of the third game in the series.
    I shouldn't complain too much as I like pretty much everything else written there.....also the Fire Emblem Series Numbering/Sequel-esque/Remake-Orgy is a whole mess on another level....its nearly as confusing as the Final Fantasy 2 = 4 and Final Fantasy 3 = 6 confusion...but more stylish ;-P

    I blame the "Gaiden" in the second game confusing me I've edited the article to say third.

    Those who don't have a 3DS yet are in luck as a special bundle it's coming to America and Canada. I may get it for the blue 3DS alone.
    Never buy a game published by D3 Publisher that is not WKCII. They cheated on their fans by releasing a game that they didn't support not even for a year and they released a rushed translation.

    Nvm it seems the bundle only includes a digital copy pre-installed... No thanks.
